UTI

I basicly kept a UTI while I was pregnant with Gauge. Now that I'm pregnant again, UTIs are showing up again. How can I prevent them? I've cut out pretty much all man made sugars and wear loose pants and reg panties. Anyone got any other ideas?

  • I kept them when I was preg. too. I just went to the dr and my dr gave me meds for it. You are prone to UTIs, bladder infections, kidney infections, UT imbalances. Its normal to get them when your preg but you need to get them under controll with meds or it could result in pre term labor or even miscarrages!

  • Do you drink a lot of Cranberry Juice? Not the cocktail or punch mix....just strait cranberry juice.....it really helps...

    There are also AZO cranberry supplements you can buy but I would check with my Dr. to make sure they are ok first.

  • You need to increase your water intake, increase acidic juice intake, pee more frequently and make sure you are wiping front to back always.
